  • Santa Fe mom accused of cutting kids throats

    SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Police in Santa Fe say a 39-year-old woman slashed the throats of her two young sons with a razor knife but they weren't seriously hurt.

    Sherry Kay Resser was booked on two counts of attempted murder after driving her children to a hospital Saturday evening.

    Lt. Louis Carlos says Resser used a razor knife on the boys, but they only suffered puncture wounds and will fully recover.

    A police probable cause statement obtained by the Santa Fe New Mexican says she reportedly told officers she tried killing her sons so the devil could not harm them.

    She was being held without bail in the county jail Sunday afternoon. Jail records don't list a lawyer.

  • Fire season races in with the winds

    It’s that time of the year again — fire season — and Los Alamos residents should be just as cautious of possible fire risks because much like last year weather conditions are predicted to once again be hot, windy and dry.

    That’s what Los Alamos Deputy Fire Chief Justin Grider said, adding that the area can expect to experience instead of bursts of wind, more sustained winds this fire season.

    He said Los Alamos National Laboratory, Park Service, Forest Service and county crews have been working on fire mitigation efforts in their respective jurisdictions since last year’s Las Conchas fire that burned more than 150,000 acres.

  • PD goes for grant

    The Los Alamos Police Department is seeking state money to beef up its DWI prevention program.
    Earlier this month, the department’s Lt. Jason Wardlow-Herrera, who is also the project coordinator, applied for $64,000 from the state’s Finance and Administration Department’s Local Driving While Intoxicated Grant Program, of which the majority will go to prevention and treatment.
    The application states that despite Los Alamos’s relative isolation from the rest of the state and perceived educational affluence, that the county suffers from alcohol- and drug- related offenses as much as the rest of the state.
